We live in a time and place of unparalleled opportunities at the cost of unprecedented uncertainty. The catalyst is rapid acceleration and acceptance of disruptions as a way of life where no industry or individual is immune.
The challenge is future-readiness and a record number of CEOs are being fired after failing to navigate disruption, as reported by CBInsights. The number is the largest wave of departures since the 2007-2008 financial crisis.
Today we see the convergence of exponential technologies that are doubling and recombining like IoT, Robotics, AI, Synthetic Biology, Immersive and Augmented Tech, Big Data, and others. Advances are moving faster than ever before and with each step, society continues to fall behind.
In particular, AI is an exponential technology that touches every industry and every aspect of business and life. It is a foundational technology that is garnering the highest investment funding across fewer rounds and hitting a new high of $26.6 billion in 2019 alone. What does this mean of our human abilities to keep up?
